On a day when most supersticious people are wary, I am smiling today as it marks the exact 1 month countdown to my visit back to my home town.
I am very motivated to make these next 4 weeks intense and more of a bootcamp maybe than January was. I have been successful in maintaining steady workouts at least 5 times a week (most times every day). I am even starting to include some evening workouts to top up my am workouts.
I busted through my major plateau last Sunday going below 170 for the first time in years and feel encouraged that the numbers will continue to move. It's like it was the confirmation my body needed to stay in gear and get moving because it now knows I mean business.
So for the next 4 weeks, I am going to be paying extra care and attention to my workouts, my eating and stress management.
My other goal - well I'm anxious to see my weigh in at the doctor's when I go for the follow-up visit. Not sure what date I'll go but I'm sure there will be a difference.
I'm finally feeling like my life here in the new city is settling in. I've been moved now for about 4 months but it was a hectic start - with the job search, finding work, getting accustomed to all the new routines with the girls' new schools, and then the bus strike - making me having to car pool and work extra long days. No more! Now I'm riding the bus and enjoying the scenery as I let someone else do the driving. It's great!
I talked to the technician last night about my computer and he said my computer was the most 'infected' they had ever seen. Go figure! I would break that record. Hoping to be picking it up this evening and getting it all set back up. May have to re-install a bunch of stuff but I look at it as another clean start.
So here is to 1 month of major serious crack down! My goal is now to hit below the 160 mark by the time March 13th comes along - something I have not done in over a decade or more!
I'm pumped!! TGIF!!
